here's the holiday apron for tie one on. wow. this took way too long. too many other project interruptions. I laughed when I finished because I am obsessed with light blue and red right now and didn't even realize it. it's appearing in everything I do. It's also the colors of a fabulous vintage apron Laura sent me this summer, which I have been wearing daily. So much that I haven't even photographed it yet.
Christmas present + glitter rick-rack= pocket. And I was planning on using this wonderful fabric for a Christmas quilt (I got it so long ago) but it did really feel right for my quilt work right now, but I do love it, so perfect for an apron, I'd say.
okay-here's the detail where the straps button to the inside of the waistband. the pins are for the oh so professional photo styling. I used this vintage apron pattern for this apron. I really really love sewing from vintage patterns. can't I say that enough. It warms my heart to be sewing and reading the same directions that my grandmother would have, not that it was her pattern, but it could have been! okay,now I really have to get busy making cookie dough. (wearing this apron while I do it) I've made 3 kinds so far, and want to make 4 more (or more- insane?? yes!)
***on a tie on one related note: the holiday aprons are due on december 31st. so you have 6 more weeks. I wanted to extend it since we are taking next month off anyway. so, new gallery will be in January, with the new theme, as promised.
